Actually, I saw the thread title . I was half expecting (?hoping ) for tales of snoring , funny smells or obnoxious behaviour.

Do spiders suffer from flatulence or BO? Any arachnoligists here?

You must have used ITA matrix to get eight legs to your flight!

As I have previously noted, a few years ago, a large black tarantula crawled across the duvet covering my chest on a LHR-SEA flight, in First.

​​​​​​​Yes, I have witnesses.

Looks more like a Daddy-Long-Legs to me - so presumably he booked an exit row seat for the extra leg room

I fear Mrs CLAM would kill us all by opening the door at FL350 to get away from that bad boy. She's the only woman I know who will, quite literally, pull the wardrobe out looking for a spider at 4 in the morning( we once had to replace the extra wardrobe because she tipped the thing over!) before kicking me till I wake up so I can kill it. My race to Silver would also be wasted as she would refuse to board another BA flight for the rest of her life.

Although I understand the jest, there's a naughty part of me that would like to see her try.
